rush limbaugh, god and the facts, how do you see the conservative movement as a whole being able to communicate our message effectively to the american people as a whole and kind of the middle, non-politically elite class when we have such an establishment of media and like showmanship up against us where they twist our words and we can hardly combat that? >> let me say first of all that i was active as a candidate during the rise of reagan. then i was a congressman for the last two years through the presidential campaign of '80 and i serveed with him for eight year necessary congress when he was president. and we had -- you could argue we had a harder time because we didn't have rush limbaugh or fox news or hannity or the internet. there was actually probably greater net monopoly by abc, nbc, cbs, "new york times" in that era than there is today. i have two practical pieces of advice for you. the first is sheer repetition. i mean, if you took all e-mail addresses in this room, collectively you probably represent 60 or 100 or 200,000 people. you would be startled how many people
! greta: one person says that it is less an opposition and more like astroturf, and rush limbaugh does not like it. >> i find itç interesting that the democrats are starting to refer to these towncar meetings as unruly mobs, we cannot promise security -- we are referring to these town hall meetings as unruly mobs. no, these are citizens. what these democrats are accusing you of doing it at these town-hall meetings is exactly what obama taught people to do. heç is the community agitator. he is the community organizer. he is the guy who taught people to show up at events over and over again and read people up, tear them down, disrupt them, and make sure it does not happen, and now, it is happening to them, it is not a ginned up, is genuine. -- not gin up. it is genuine. -- not ginned up. >> i will answer any questions they have. if they want to come over to the white house and answered line by line what is going on, i will be happy to do that. greta: but is president obama even going to read this bill? listen closely to press secretary robert gibbs. >> will be president read the enti
to spin the release of euna lee and laura ling into a diplomatic disaster. and limbaugh asks if president clinton hit on them. >> we saw standing before us president bill clinton. >> blackwater continues. more charges against eric prince running a jihad against muslims involved as witnesses against his company and tonight while supposedly protecting americans in iraq illegally dealing arms there. gitmo after threatening, torturing and imprisoning without charge or evidence could the bush administration possibly have sunk lower? yes, they bought fake testimony from witnesses with cash and shoes. the bubble headed bleach blond comes on at 6:00. >> in my home state of minnesota so far only two of these deals have actually been approved by the government. >> close, ms. news actress. 2%. not two. 2%. that would be different. and speaking of minnesota, the man who nearly
to knock down the other side. >> conservative radio talk-show host rush limbaugh says the white house is "looking for tattletales, snitches, and informants." the white house -- republicans point to a new "the wall street journal" and abc poll where people were asked about obama's health care plan. to 46% say it is a good idea. 42% say it is a bad idea. we just got a letter that the republican senator john cornyn sent to president obama. he says he has never been aware of any american president asking american citizens to report fellow citizens for anything deemed fishy. he wants to know what the white house is going to do and what action they intend to take against citizens reported to engaging in fishy speech. there is a lot of back-and- forth. martha: thank you. trace: check out this picture. it looks like a pretty normal journalist, right? she works in sueudan. something you see in this picture is causing riots in the streets. the astounding punishment and her dramatic story in three minutes. having my identity stolen has taken more than money from me. it's taken my time. time that
's being orchestrated by the republican party's other than like fox news and people like rush limbaugh. >> do you know that or do you just believe that? >> this is obvious. >> how is it obvious? >> every day -- fox doesn't tell people you have to do this or that. >> but -- >> but they are putting out the message to the people the birth conspiracy -- >> what does that have to do with health care? >> all of these people are coming together and a coalition of pranks who have created this. >> what did we learn in civil protest? we learned it from you guys. >> what is going on here is the republican party is losing control of its own base. >> oh, please! come on! >> the republican party have all of these different lpts fighting about control of the party. >> you people on the left have lost control of the people what they care about. >> let me ask both of you a question. i disagree. i think everybody understands what people care about which they feel like they want work in a fair system and their voice can be heard and basically is there a level playing field. whether it's on et left or the
to the "playbook" when the white house appointed rush limbaugh as the republican chief spokesman. we're going to hear them trying to make republicans own what's going on or be blamed for what's going on in these town meetings. today the democratic national committee is out with an ad talking about angry mobs and very interesting for the first time the democratic party taking on, including a democratic web video which will surely be a cable ad. they're including that clip we've seen here on "morning joe" of those in the town meeting, an e-mail urging supporters to turn out today for vice president biden in new york, talking about angry mobs. so the idea is to either expose or caricature, depending on where you sit, what's going on in these groups that are fighting back. some of them encouraged by conservative groups, business groups. some of it probably genuine. >> mike, you mentioned the ad. let's watch a piece of that and show people what you're talking about. >> the right wing extremists. they lost the election. they lost on 0 the recovery act, the budget and children's health care. they've
